Western Saddlery is junk! I was "given" one at an auction. I hadn't looked the saddle over before the auction and could only look at it from my seat in the audience. When no one was bidding on it, I picked it up for next to nothing. That was four years ago, it still has yet to be on one of my horses. I have tried to give it away a few times and people won't take it. It does nothing more then take up useful space in my tack shed. I have nothing good to say about that brand, they are cheap and poorly built.
When you are sitting a top a horse, you are that much closer to God.
